Best PDX Oysters and Higgins Question

midwesthound | May 14, 2007 08:22 PM

Hi, we're going to be travelling out to PDX in a few weeks and have gotten some great advice on places from this board already. We've so far booked at Murata and Higgins since we love sushi and thoughtful local/NW cuisine. I'm curious to know if anyone can answer two specific questions to help us round out our plans:

1. Where to go for Portand's best oysters? I've read the posting about Alberta Street Oyster Bar but they seem inconclusive. We're most interested in quality and, to a somewhat lesser extent, variety. Not price sensitive.

2. Would Higgins be described as higher end from an atmosphere perspective? Or is it more a basic, paper table cloth kind of place but with great, inventive food? I learned they serve a salmon dish almost every night (we love fresh wild salmon), using Alaskan King early in the season (April/early May) until the Oregon run supports all-Oregon King in summer? Is that as good?

Many thanks.
